KEF ls50 meta’s are on the way
The Ls50 metas suffer from too many backwaves from the woofer so they are not good speakers. If you think I am wrong, prove it. 
Buchardt A500, KEF LS50 Wireless, etc. What are your top 3 downsides?
Better amp/speaker matching what matching are you referring to?

You cant absorb down to just 600hz and call it a day. What abut the range from 600hz to 50hz? Why is it okay for that to be ignored?

the attenuation is down to 620hz not just the range of the tweeter How do you attach the absorber to the drive unit so that it stops absorbing below 620hz? I dont see how that works.

All you need to absorb the tweeter backwaves is a bit of foam. It is not rocket science.

The problem with the KEFs is that they dont sound good to me. Ive heard the ls50, ref1 and blade. The blade was the only one that was tolerable.The engineers at KEF have a lot more work to do before they can impress a master audiophile such as mys...

When they arrive and you set them up, just remember that the pesky backwaves are still there just as they were in the original LS50 and that it wont be long before you hear those nasty backwaves!You will be looking for another upgrade in a year. I... 
KEF LS50 Meta
Absorbing most of the backwave as advertised sounds really good, but would like to see some tests to confirm the effectiveness I dont know where you read that it absorbs most of the backwave. It does not. The absorber is only used on the tweet...

This really changes the game BIG TIME for box speakers now !.. Not really. The KEF is still a box speaker.  
ATC SCM 40 mk2 vs Salk Song3 Encore
either way you’ll want to upgrade your dac.  A used schiit bifrost multibit can be had for $500 or a schiit gungir multibit, like what I have, can be had for $800. Thats a lot of money for a DAC Bruce. How can you be sure there's really any...

Why are there few spherical speakers?
cost to produce and lack of demand.Magico go to a lot of trouble with their cabinets. How much more trouble are you implying it would take to do a sphere? Is it going to take more effort than to send a man to mars? Surely not. As for lack of deman... 
Why are there few spherical speakers?
Are you saying these are the best speakers simply because of their shape? I've heard Gallo speakers and they were nothing special, but, by all means, go and buy some. I am saying that all else being equal, spheres are best. So its perfectly pos... 
Why are there few spherical speakers?
Where do you see the unmet demand for spherical speakers?I never said there was demand for spherical speakers. I said there are some audiophiles that care about how a speaker sounds and don't care about how it looks. Do I really need to explain... 
Why are there few spherical speakers?
what has that got to do with spherical speakers? They are just boxes like all the rest except with a waveguide.
